“Good Medicine”

Act two

2nd & 4th Year Story Creation
Synopsis: Good Medicine is a devised ensemble play that explores the inter-generational challenges of a Cree/Nehiyaw family in post-colonial Canada. With interest in the Cree value system, Māori Director Renae Maihi asked the students to explore, challenge and deconstruct the Cree Tipi teachings. By using the exploration as a way of providing a structure for the work and a foundation in which to discuss challenges that First Nations people face as a result of colonization, residential schools, the 60’s Scoop – stolen culture. What emerged was a carefully woven story that is provocative, moving, courageous and inspiring. Good Medicine is an examination of confronting painful truths bravely and remembering who you are.
